Part 3 of Festive Mystery Almost Complete

I've been working on Part 3 of the Festive Mystery Quilt for two days and am almost done. There was alot a work involved in this section, so I feel that I've made major progress on the quilt top.  I still have to square up the rectangles (funny, huh?)  and redo a few, but that's nothing compared to everything else I did. 


I like the diamond design in the strips.  And the hourglass square is one of my favorites.  And I'm happy with the dark fabric near the white background.  We're halfway done I believe.

This is another quilt from the MQX East show.  My attention was caught by the border edging. 




It makes me want to be more creative when I'm finishing my quilts. 

I sometimes like to see simple quilting and this one is an example.  The quilter just used a circle template and created her design.  I have read that Amish quilters use this technique for border designs. 


I love the 3D effect on this quilt of the little quilts on the clothesline.  I like the simple quilting, too.


The prarie points look great, too.  I haven't tried those yet, but I will.

God Bless You.
Have a great week.
